Sorry, I’m late getting this updated…last week the Wisconsin Scrappers blog’s card sketch challenge was posted.  Here is the sketch:

Every year, there is a summer kick-off celebration in downtown Wausau.  Local bands play, food is sold, and at dusk a movie is shown.  Andrew loves to pack a picnic and go check everything out.  This year the movie was Shrek.  The movie started at about 9 pm, so Andrew only wanted to stay for about a half an hour before he was too tired and wanted to head home.  Here are some pics:

Andrew’s last day of school was June 9th.  He was sooo excited for Summer vacation to begin.  As a result, it was a bit difficult to get some pictures, and the bus was early (I think the bus driver was ready for vacation too!!), so he had to run down to the bus.


I had the pleasure of choosing the Wisconsin Scrappers color challenge for this month, and since summer is almost here, chose yellow!

Here is my layout for the challenge:


Well…we all survived Andrew’s birthday party.  I had 3 first graders and 2 second graders here.  They all ate pizza and birthday cake, then Andrew opened presents before playing a quick game of Hyper Dash before heading to the mini golf course (which didn’t open until 5).  The only “negative” is that everyone always wanted to golf first!  Here are some pics of the day:

Andrew requested a Sponge Bob cake for his birthday tomorrow…I searched online and found a picture that looked do-able so I gave it a go…here is my version:

When I showed it to Andrew he seemed disappointed…he wanted a Sponge Bob shaped cake…body and all.  I told him to be happy with what he gets!!
